We believe that achieving this will enable pupils to grow, blossom and flourish whilst feeling happy and enthusiastic about themselves and their learning.

“It’s okay to not be okay”
PSHCE (Personal Social Health and Citizens Education) is a programme of learning through which pupils acquire knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future. As part of a whole school approach, it develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
At All Saints, we use the PSHE association programme of study alongside the statutory guidance for Relationship Education to plan, deliver and assess the children.
We base our PSHCE curriculum on three core themes:
1. Health and Wellbeing
3. Living in the Wider World.
As part of our PSHCE curriculum, we teach the children the characteristics of good physical health and mental wellbeing (which is outlines in the RSE and Health Education guidance) and link this to our 5 ways to wellbeing.
Our Relationship Education covers:
1. Families and People who care for me
2. Caring friendships
3. Respectful relationships
4. Online relationships
5. Being Safe
Click here for an overview of the units each class covers throughout the year. PSHCE and Relationship Education is taught both as a discrete subject, as part of collective worship and in a cross curricular way at the teacher’s discretion.
